WSBK 2008 -- Round 1 - Qatar

#1 Unread post by QuietMonkey »

Finally! Road racing is here!

The World Superbike Championships are upon us... They've started qualifying for Round 1...

I'll just pick Haga for the championship now, since he's had enough years to mature, and with Corser as his teammate for another year the reminder to take it home every race will be right in his pits with him.

:mrgreen:

Qualifying :shooting2: Times:

Corser (Yamaha) 1m59.6s;
Bayliss (Ducati Xerox) 1m59.8s;
Nieto (Suzuki) 2m00.3s;
Haga (Yamaha) 2m00.4s;
Kagayama (Suzuki) 2m00.5s;
Xaus (Ducati) 2'm00.6s;
Lanzi (Ducati) 2m00.7s;
Biaggi (Ducati) 2m00.7s;
Gimbert (Yamaha) 2m00.8s;
Neukirchner (Suzuki) 2m00.9s;
Fabrizio (Ducati Xerox) 2m00.9s

But Haga's always got that little extra "CRAZY" factor to throw Corser for a loop...

Check out WSBK on YouTube... see vids here:

2007 Season promo vid here, and of course many links to the 2007 season championship races...

... and Haga proves I don't take the easy choices by biting the dust in the first race of the year :D The Haga of old is still the Haga of new ;-)
